The club has a technical article on converting C3 light here:

I'm no mechanic but it helped me back in 1990 with my first C3.

Well, the wait is finally over, my c3 was delivered today. Been a mixed bag so far, but overall very pleased with it.
Battery is toast, one headlight actuator has a sheared pipe fitting, and the water pump is leaking, otherwise, itís in outstanding condition. Looks to have not been used much since itís restoration. Just going to get all the above parts ordered, along with a rh mirror, new mats, as it has none, to protect the new carpets. And start doing the lighting mods, gives me something to do whilst getting it registered.
